2001, what have we learned about investigating these sorts of incidents? and even the technology itself, as it improved significantly since then? >> it really has. and i would say on almost every front, the improvements are really significant. what we have defended against extremely effectively, is a large-scale catastrophic attack like what we saw on 9/11. and these sorts of things, our intelligence, our coordination on investigation, across agencies, between the federal and local government, are vastly better. our technology for detecting explosives and follow-up investigations, vastly better. these sorts of attacks, as tragic as it was. 3 people killed, over 100 wounded, there's still of a relatively small scale. again, it's not surprising to me that you could have an attack like this and not see information either from the fbi or overseas, that was international terrorism, indicating there might be some threat, either generally or pointed at boston. the level of professionalism and understanding of how now to investigate this and the level of coordination, is markedly better. that w

in learning technology including new computers. as you can see from the 00 photo that i have brought to the floor, these are very impressive spaces and go a long way to paycheck -- to make it a friendly place. one of the goals of the library project is to help each transformed library become a hub for greater school community. because the weinberg foundation wants this to be a successful model, it has partnered with the baltimore education resource consortium to evaluate the impacting within the school community. evaluations are under way at the first three libraries and involve students, teachers, and community members. in addition to supplying books as part of each rein say, the foundation and its partners wanted to do even more to equip these new spaces with the adventure of reading. the library project in the first year launched a huge book drive with more than 40 partners and 100 pickup locations. it is clear that my fellow marylanders were eager to contribute directly to this project donating some 13,000 books valued at over $75,000. i share the story with my colleagues and the
